Photographer's Note

Hello friends and colleagues, today I offer you an interesting view of a famous house in the Alsatian village of Riquewihr. I hope you like it, then some letters about the villa.

Riquewihr in French language, Reichenweier in Alsatian, is a locality and French commune located in the department of Haut-Rhin, in the region of Alsace.

For its beauty and tourist attraction is one of the villages distinguished by the association "Les plus beaux villages de France". Undoubtedly, Riquewihr is one of the most charming places in Alsace. It has little more than a thousand inhabitants and is about 50 kilometers south of Strasbourg, between this city and Colmar, another of the towns of Alsace that preserves places of remarkable beauty.
The city is famous as a producer of wines, especially Riesling, which has been cultivating since ancient times in the countryside that extends around the site, which still retains part of its medieval defensive system. Experts say that the secret of wine quality lies in its geographical location, in the Vosges sun, sheltered from the cold of the west.
The town retains a special and simple charm. The urban set preserves houses of remarkable flavor, some are of the XV and XVI centuries. Many of the buildings show an artistic decoration, but most are simple and have the charm of rural architecture, with its wooden trusses and its flowery windows.
The locality has a local historical museum and a small hotel offer.
